Today is Benjamin’s birthday, he is now 8! Time has definately flown these past 8 years. Benjamin wants so badly to be like his older brothers and yet at times is content to be my little boy ~ I know that part won’t last much longer so I savor every moment of it. I thought I’d share some of his favorites with you…
Favorite Movie: Monsters vs. Aliens
Favorite Book: The Bible
Favorite Bible Verse: Isaiah 40:31 “Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.”
Favorite Electronic Game: Kungfu Panda – so he can collect his “chi” and unleash his “awesomeness” on everyone
Favorite Game: Pictureka Card game – “Because I think the guy on the toliet is just so funny” ::hee, hee
Favorite Food: Stingray – “Stingray meat rocks” :: You know, not just any 8 year old would say this!
Favorite Dog: Rascal
Today promises to be filled with all kinds of celebration. Since Friday is traditionally homemade pizza and movie night Benjamin has decided to have his birthday dinner tomorrow night. And what is on the menu, well, spaghetti and meatballs, confetti cake, peaches and cream ice cream and, um, …lobster. I’m thinking we’ll just get 2 of those creepy things and share. And the movie for tonight…Indiana Jones (the old first one) He’s been waiting a looong time to be old enough to see this, although I’m sure there will be some fast forwarding and some eye closing tonight.
Happy Birthday Benjamin!!
